For starters, you’ll get to see the conclusion of 3-year-old Nathan Chase’s story. The last thing you saw in Episode 3 was Nathan being examined by Dr. Pam Okada in the Emergency Department. He had fallen down a stairwell at home and landed on his head. His skull looked like it had a fracture and a hematoma,and it was uncertain if he would need surgery. Episode 4 also shows how the Emergency staff responded to a baby involved in a car accident that made her car seat wind up like this.
Another reason to watch is that you’ll get to see our Level 3C Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). What does “Level 3C” mean? It means that our NICU can respond to the most acute and complex conditions. The leaders of the NICU, Drs. Rashmin Savani and James Moore, are shown responding to several of our tiniest patients, including newborn Dakayta Givens, who was born with spina bifida.
Lastly, Dr. Okada will be shown away from the hospital. While you know from Episode 3 that she’s a high-intensity, super-sharp Emergency physician, you probably didn’t know that she was a mother of five. And I’m willing to bet you didn’t know she boxed in her free time. Well, you’ll get to see both of those aspects of her this weekend.
So, please make sure to watch live/DVR/watch on our Facebook page as we reveal more of Children’s and our amazing staff and patients this weekend. Remember: 6:30 p.m. on Saturday on WFAA-Channel 8.
